There are many myths about money plants, but the truth is that they are useful in many ways.
First of all, they help to clean the air in your home or office. Money plants release oxygen at night, which can help you sleep better. They also absorb toxic compounds from the air and release them into the soil as a form of natural purification. The leaves of money plants can be used as insect repellent, so you can place them around your home to keep pests away.
Money plants are also easy to care for. They require little light and only need watering once every few weeks when you first get them. You should never over-water your money plant because it will cause the roots to rot and the plant will die quickly!
Money plants, also known as Pachira Aquatica or Malabar chestnut, are a species of tree that grows in tropical climates in Africa, Asia, and South America. The leaves of the money plant are large and fan-shaped, and its fruit is round and brown.
Money plants are often thought to bring good fortune to those who keep one in their home—but are they actually useful? Here are some common myths about money plants and the truth behind them:
Myth 1: Money plants attract wealth.
No one can deny that money is a great thing to have around—but it's not the only thing that makes life worth living. So no matter how much money you have, you can still enjoy yourself without it!
Myth 2: Money plants grow better when watered with coins.
While this may be an old wives' tale, coins do not help your money plant grow any faster or healthier than water alone will do. In fact, watering your plant too often can cause it to get root rot and die! So be sure to check your soil every week or two to see if it needs more water or less water (depending on where you live).
Myth 3: Money plants aren't poisonous
This myth is false! Money plants are poisonous, but they're only toxic when eaten or rubbed against the skin. If ingested by pets or children, money plants can cause vomiting and diarrhea in humans as well. If you have any concerns about the safety of your pet or child around money plant leaves (or any other kind of plant), please consult with your pediatrician before letting them near any type of foliage at all!
